MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin Senate is expected to vote on a trio of Republican bills that would tweak state election rules.

One bill would specific that only a chief election inspector and an inspector from a different political party than the chief can secure ballot containers. Another would require chief inspectors to assign an equal number of inspectors from both Republican and Democratic parties to perform every function at the polls. The third bill would require municipal clerks and anyone else authorized to receive a voter's registration to record the type of identifying document the voter provides as proof of residency.

The Senate is scheduled to vote on the bills Tuesday. Approval would send the measures on to the Assembly.
